The clinic that follows us detects 307 genetic diseases. Thanks to me, they added Cadasil to their screening protocol. I will thus be able avoid spreading the disease to my child, who will be born with the help of a surrogate mother after in vitro fertilization” Mathieu told Closer. He also adds “I have soon to be 47 years old and, in theory, the life expectancy of Cadasil patients is 62 years. I suffer from bipolarity.
